Optimum grip with plastic outrigger pads
Outrigger pads are the ideal solution when it comes to creating stability for vehicles and machines. They offer a large surface area and distribute the load optimally without damaging the ground. Outrigger pads made of plastic are weather-resistant and extremely durable.
LuxTek outrigger pads and protection plates are made of high-quality polyethylene with a high density. The material is regularly checked for quality by TÜV Rhineland Industry Service GmbH.
Where are outrigger pads needed?
Whether for erecting scaffolding or containers, for setting up mobile toilet facilities and sales stands or for securing caravans: outrigger pads, also known as protective plates or compensation plates, provide a valuable service. They compensate for uneven floors and differences in level and ensure that scaffolding and vehicles are held securely.
The use of outrigger pads prevents direct contact with the ground. In this way, objects such as containers and scaffolding are insulated from the ground and protected from cold, moisture and dirt. Plastic outrigger pads are ideal for use on hard floors, such as concrete, asphalt or paving. In the interior, they can be laid on classic hall floors.
Possible areas of application for plastic outrigger pads
With outrigger pads you can provide support for:
- towing vehicles
- trailers and commercial vehicles
- working platforms
- lifting platforms and loading cranes
- heavy duty cranes
- mobile homes
What advantages do plastic outrigger pads have?
An essential feature of polyethylene outrigger pads is their high temperature resistance. Neither frost nor heat damage the material. You can therefore use and store the sheets both indoors and outdoors. Even UV radiation cannot harm the robust material.
Unlike wood, the material cannot absorb water or chemicals. This ensures long-term stability. The round base plates can be easily rolled to their place of use, so they can be laid by a single person. Alternatively, they can be carried, for this purpose they are equipped with holding loops and plastic handles like our crane support beams.
In what sizes are the LuxTek outrigger pads available?
Our outrigger pads are available in the standard sizes indicated. Available are diameters between 590 and 1190 millimetres. The larger the diameter, the stronger the material, from 40 mm for the smallest plates to 80 mm for the largest. The support pressure is between 20 and 70 tons depending on the design. Since these values are approximate values, we recommend that you consult us before using the outrigger pads. For this purpose, it is advisable to assess the surface on which the plates are to be used.
What individualisations are possible for plastic outrigger pads?
As with many LuxTek products, special additional functions are also possible for protection plates. A roughened surface prevents the object to be mounted from slipping. The plates can also be equipped with extra handles for more comfortable transport. In addition, the plastic outrigger pads can be equipped with a metal core, spikes or reflectors.
